It's amazing that some people cannot see why they are having heating troubles and other problems.

Anyone got a frog?

Gave my PC a suck-out last week after 18 months of putting it off!

Dunno about frogs but I've had a spider short-out a power supply before.

I've heard that sawdust and the like is harmless to your harddrive, yet cigarette smoke will kill it faster than anything. Its particles are smaller, allowing it to get into the small holes of the drive.

And to think, my mom is insistent on "don't ever put anything on top of the box, it'll make it overheat!"

I don't have the problem really as my case doesnt have a side on it yet (not made one yet) but in the past it was terrible.

However, working with my dad in the PC repair shop we had some classics. PCs taken from offices when you could still smoke indoors. They were yellow and brown with nicotine and all the fans were mushed up with a combination of the greasy slime from nicotine and the normal dust the collect. The smell was the worst bit

My dad owns several rental homes, and I've helped him clean them several times when I was younger. I remember having to clean the walls and ceilings - they had yellow tar from the renters smoking inside. Its as if we were cleaning the lungs off the walls of the place. Its pretty sad how people continue smoking despite all the health problems.
